Colts re-sign T.Y. Hilton: Fantasy football fallout for 2021

We take a look at the fantasy football impact as T.Y. Hilton signs with the Indanapolis Colts ahead of the 2021 NFL Season.

On Wednesday T.Y. Hilton reached a deal to return to the Indianapolis Colts on a one-year contract worth $10 million, with $8 million of that guaranteed money.

It looks like the aging superstar will finish his career with the team he started it with, as he heads into his age 32 season, but there are still some concerns from a fantasy perspective.

WR T.Y. Hilton signing: Fantasy football impact

It will be good that Hilton is staying with head coach Frank Reich and won’t have to learn an entirely new offense. Still, there are massive question marks at the quarterback position after the retirement of Philip Rivers. They recently acquired Carson Wentz in a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, but he’s been an up-and-down player during his career and is coming off his worst season in the league.

The Colts have also transitioned to a far more run-first offense, with Jonathan Taylor and Marlon Mack leading the charge. Hilton was the team’s best receiver last season, totaling 762 yards and five scores. But even though that was still the top of the team, it was the second-worst of Hilton’s nine-year career. The only year where he produced less was a season that he played just 10 games due to injuries.
